I had just created a flow to accomplish this when I came across your post. I'm using Fluid Navigation for gestures, which will launch an Automagic shortcut, which in turn executes my flow.

The flow simply opens the recents view and taps on the left side to open the previous app. I'm on Pie so you might have to tweak the coordinates of the click.

Fluid's built-in way of opening the previous app doesn't work well with some apps, that's why I made a flow for it.

It seems for easier way, we still have to use other app to do it. Other way need root to dumpsys the recent menu, parse and find the last app and use launch app to open it again.
